keeping up with a Thank You notes list

 Hi all-

We recieved our first wedding registry item in the mail the other day! (yay!), and I wanted to go ahead and get a jump on how to organize my Thank You card lists. I had this idea to make up a spread sheet, then print it out and stick it to the fridge so I can just jot down the info as things come in or after showers, transfer the scratch paper info to the spread sheet. 

Has anyone else tried a similar method? Or did you come up with a clever way to keep yourself organized?

  • I did what Duds said -- I had a spreadsheet for names and addresses, RSVPs, and then after the shower and wedding, gifts.

  • I've put together an Excel spreadsheet for our guest list and have added a Shower Gift, Shower TY Note Sent, Wedding Gift and TY Note Sent columns at the end. I plan to record what gifts were given and when the TY notes go out.

    This exactly.
  • We're doing a google docs spreadsheet so that my FI, my mom, and I can all track it in case something comes to one of them instead of me - we will be living in separate cities for the 8 months or so before the wedding.

  • We also used a spread sheet that had all the info. As for remembering to transfer info to it, I used to just bring the physical card or packing slip up to my desk with me and work from that.

    I wouldn't feel comfortable keeping a list of all gifts on my fridge, but I guess it depends how often people come over your house.
  • Great idea, but I agree with tenofcups-- don't keep this on your fridge. It just seems really awkward to have it out there in a public area where anyone who comes over could see it.

    This is exactly what we're doing, so FI, my parents, and my FILs will be able to add addresses and see RSVPs, etc.
